Wrapped To Win: The KC Streetcar Kicks Off 2021 Sporting KC Season


Member News

(Kansas City, Missouri) – The KC Streetcar is dressed and ready to cheer on Sporting KC.

On Friday, April 30, Sporting KC and the KC Streetcar unveiled a specially “wrapped” Sporting KC Streetcar featuring the Sporting Blue and Dark Indigo stripes and the “Two States, One City, One Club” mantra.

This marks the second time the KC Streetcar has partnered with Sporting KC to uniquely design and wrap a streetcar. This continues the tradition of the KC Streetcar partnering with our community sporting teams with specially designed vinyl wraps which have included the Kansas City Chiefs, the Kansas City Royals, and the Kansas City Monarchs + Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

Track the exact location of the Sporting KC Streetcar, otherwise known as Streetcar 801, using the online KC Streetcar tracker on our website: www.kcstreetcar.org/route/streetcar-tracker/.

Two-time MLS Cup champion Sporting KC is tied for second place in the Western Conference through Week 2 of the 2021 season. Led by Manager Peter Vermes—the longest-tenured head coach in MLS history—Sporting will continue their 2021 campaign Saturday at rivals Real Salt Lake in a 1 p.m. CT kickoff on Bally Sports Kansas City Plus. Additionally, tickets for the club’s next three home matches at world-class Children’s Mercy Park are available at SeatGeek.com.
